SC244 - Gifts of the Earth

Today's card is for the sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, I used the stamp set Gifts of the Earth which is from the Holiday Mini (see my side bar to download). The colors in this picture seem washed out compared to real life, I guess it's because I took this picture using my photo tent instead of natural day light like I usually do. Someone recently left me a comment and asked how I take photos of my cards, I try and take pictures of my cards/projects using two sheets of 12"x12" white paper with one on the table and one propped up behind it and use the light coming into our dinning room, I set my camera for no flash. The best time of day is mid morning or mid afternoon, other wise the natural lighting is either not bright enough or to harsh. If I have a chance I'll probably re-shoot this picture tomorrow.

Supplies: Gifts of the Earth, Grateful Greetings, Weathered BG, Autumn Traditions DSP, Ribbon, Brads, Nestie, Aqua brush, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa, Summer Sun, Ruby Red, So Saffron.

Thanks for stopping by!
